British Sports Cars

Auteur: Hartmut Lehbrink

In a very particular way British sports cars reflect British society, with its class structure and contradictions. There are the aristocrats such as the Bentley 4-1/2 litre supercharged model or the Aston Martin Vanquish. At the other end of the wheel-based social scale are the purveyors of sporty mobility like the MG TC or the Austin Healey Sprite. Somewhere in between, January boss Sir William Lyons made it his mission to make his fine creations accessible, even to people who could not afford them. So far about two and a half million British sports cars have been produced, from the best-selling MGB with its huge total of 513,272 roadsters and coupes to the exotic Jaguar XK SS, which only 16 fortunate people were able to own.

Camp David

Auteur: David Williams
THe autobiography

David Walliams has been the camp aide to the Prime Minister, the rubbish transvestite and the long-suffering wheelchair pusher for an able-bodied man. He was launched to fame with the record-breaking Little Britain , and for a while you couldn't enter a playground without hearing eh eh eh eh or computer says no.

But David Walliams is more than a comedian. He's a fascinating and complex person with a sharp intellect, a sensitive disposition and a refreshing honesty. Often described as 'a bundle of contradictions', he has disarmed people by being camp and a ladykiller, a hedonist and a sportsman, aloof and warm. Like many of our comedic geniuses - Frankie Howerd, John Cleese, Kenneth Williams - he has grappled with depression and remains an enigma.

His autobiography Camp David is a roller-coaster ride of emotions. It will surprise and entertain, and allow fans and newcomers the privilege of entering David Walliams' uniquely brilliant mind. David Walliams is an actor, writer, active fundraiser and - above all - he's a world class comedian who knows how to make us laugh.
He performed in and co-wrote the phenomenally successful Little Britain and Come Fly with Me with Matt Lucas, and recently appeared as a popular judge alongside Simon Cowell on Britain's Got Talent . He has performed many feats of endurance for charity, and won over the entire country when he swam the Thames for Sports Relief. His bestselling children's books include Mr Stink , Gangsta Granny , Billionaire Boy , Boy in the Dress and Ratburger .

Civic hopes and political realities

Auteur: S. Karthick Ramakrishnan and lrene Bloemraad (red)
Immigrants, community organizations and political engagement

For many Americans, civic participation lays the groundwork for future political engagement. Community organizing often leads to political action. But how does this model of civic life relate to the experiences of today’s immigrants? Do community organizations help immigrants gain political influence in their communities? In Civic Hopes and Political Realities, experts from a wide range of disciplines explore how civic groups across the country and around the world are shaping immigrants’ quest for political recognition.

Civic Hopes and Political Realities bridges the fields of civic engagement and immigrant adaptation for the first time. S. Karthick Ramakrishnan and lrene Bloemraad examine community organizations in six cities across California and find that even in areas with high rates of immigrant organizing, local policymakers remain unaware of the interests of ethnic organizations. Kristi Andersen examines new immigrant destinations, and finds that with political parties no longer serving as the primary vehicle for newcomers’ political incorporation, community organizations are increasingly stepping in to fill this void. However, the success of civic groups in connecting their members to the local political machinery depends on their ability to forge connections with mainstream organizations. Floris Vermeulen and Maria Berger document how government policies lead to very different civic and political outcomes for ethnic organizations. Amsterdam’s more welcoming multicultural policies help immigrant community groups attain a level of political clout that similar organizations in Berlin lack. Janelle Wong, Kathy Rim, and Haven Perez report on a study of Latino and Asian American evangelical churches. While the church shapes members’ views on issues such as abortion and same— sex marriage, church members may also question the evangelical movement’s position on such issues as civil rights and immigration. Els de Graauw finds that many non-partisan service organizations play a crucial role in advancing the political interests of immigrants. Recent cuts in non-profit funding, she argues, block not only the provision of key social services, but also an important avenue for immigrants’ political voice.

Many observers worry that America’s increasing diversity is detrimental to civic life and political engagement. Civic Hopes and Political Realities boldly advances an alternative mode of thinking: if civic life is declining in an age of increasing immigration, it may well be due to the fact that America’s civic playing field is alarmingly unequal.
